Okay before I actually go out and get tubing, I want to make sure this would work.

So, if I blew into the one end of the tubing would it actually start suction in the jars (and in turn siphon water) or would I just be making bubbles? XD

I saw little devices that were used to capture bugs (mainly flies) that, if I recall had a similar manner of suction so that it would trap the bug in a little capsule at the end of the two pieced tubing, instead of sucking the bug into your mouth. It was a really long time ago so, I'm not really 100% sure but.... yeah..


Maybe I'm just crazy :wcky:

Goat,
my experience with making anything to drain or fill multiple tanks or containers is that you must have a valve on each leg because you will find that they will all drain or fill at differenct rates... if one starts sucking air before the others you are done
